Hi,

How can we get a backup of the chat, for a Skype account, stored in the machine on which Skype is installed? Also, how can we clear all the chat history saved in the machine on which Skype is installed?

Thanks for your information.

Don’t worry about Skype contacts, all your Skype contacts are stored on the Skype server.  So as soon as you install Skype and login to your Skype account all your contacts are grabbed. Hope this information ends all your queries.
